RelativeTime

Build Status Code Climate Test Coverage

Micro lib without any dependency for getting relative time.

Motivation

I love rails but sometimes we need to create web apps (or CLI) without rails and AS. That's why I created #time_ago_in_words analog on pure ruby without any dependencies.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'relative_time'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install relative_time

Usage

Just call #in_words method with any time object:

RelativeTime.in_words(Date.today)
RelativeTime.in_words(Time.now)          # => less than a minute

RelativeTime.in_words(Time.now - 1 * 60) # => a minute ago
RelativeTime.in_words(Time.now - 3 * 60) # => 3 minutes ago

RelativeTime.in_words(Time.now + 1 * 60) # => in a minute
RelativeTime.in_words(Time.now + 3 * 60) # => in 3 minutes

Also you can use second argument as a from date:

date_from = Time.now - 60 * 60 # one hour ago
RelativeTime.in_words(Time.now, date_from)          # => an hour ago

Supported intervals

  • minutes
  • hours
  • days
  • weeks
  • months
  • years

I18n

Relative time use i18n for pluralization and translation to other languages. For using specific locale just call #in_words with specific locale:

RelativeTime.in_words(Time.now, locale: :ru)            # => через 3 часа
RelativeTime.in_words(Time.now, date_from, locale: :ru) # => минуту назад

List of supported locales:

  • en
  • id
  • ru
  • tr
  • uk
  • be
  • pt
  • fa
